Do you remember Omar Watts?

That name doesn't ring any bells.

OK. Had to google him. Won the first lottery draw in Ohio in 1974. I hadn't started playing yet. I do vaguely remember my mom buying lotto tickets later on. I was out on my own then.

    The Ohio Lottery had a game call "Buckeye 300" where they put 1000 softball size balls into a 9-foot tumbler and drew three 3 digit numbers. When they started offering pick-3, they evolved to bingo type air ball machines.

        I've been playing Lotto 6/49 since 1993.

        After 3 days after I finished my mandatory service in the Greek Army as a 'Gunner' in Army Tanks, I heard a voice of an old classmate of mine on the TV news; it was about a big jackpot which was split in 3. They 'interviewed' the winners.

        I had his home number and I gave him a call; I talked to him, congratulate him and we arranged to go out for a beer. He played 9 numbers - the same numbers every time and he used a system from a program he bought. It was just a 'disk' - a 'floppy disk' and it had Lotto Systems. I also bought the program and I loved it... I got really obsessed about the 'wheels'.

        Within a month I started to write my own programs. There was no way turning back; I fell in love with the Lottery. At the age of 45, I still am and I believe that I will always be.

        That is my story.

         

        Y'all Take Care, Keep Playing and Believe that Dreams Can Become True...

        All The Best and Always Good Luck to You!
